Mahia Peninsula
The stunning Mahia Peninsula has long been a surfing, fishing & diving mecca and a popular holiday spot for people around New Zealand and the rest of the world.
Due to the mild climate, Mahia Peninsula has become a popular all year round destination for holidaymakers and tourists.
'Mahia' translates to murmur or indistinct sound. In its full form, Te Mahia mai Tawhiti means “the murmuring of home”. This rather romantic name refers to the immutable echo of the ocean, a sound permeating the small settlement that over the years has continued to grow alongside the sea. For decades, the breathtaking scenery has made Mahia a favourite holiday spot for many families and individuals.

Mahia Peninsula has 2 coastlines. One facing toward Napier with a long cresting safe swimming beach  and the other facing toward Gisborne with golden bays and rocky out crops.
If the sea is rough on the Napier side, it is usually calm on the Gisborne side and vice versa. Travelling from one coast to the other is easy and quick.(12-15 mins) So you can enjoy the day no matter the wind direction.
There are boat landings on both sides of the peninsula with ample room to park your vehicle and trailer.
